For more than 40 years, Kelley Drye’s India practice has been distinguished as a leading law firm for India-related transactions and disputes, delivering quality legal services to both U.S. and other international clients in their Indian business relationships, and to Indian businesses operating in the United States.

Our longstanding relationships with multinational entities and the Indian legal and regulatory bodies provide unique value to our clients.  We provide strategic counseling and comprehensive representation on a wide range of legal issues.

Our India practice advises on corporate and commercial transactions and international litigation and arbitration.  We advise on cross-border transactions involving the U.S. and India; counsel foreign investors, private and public companies, private equity firms, investment banks and others in connection with their investments in India; and negotiate and structure mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, information technology transactions, technology transfers and financing deals.  Similarly, we help Indian companies to resolve disputes in courts and in arbitrations.  In collaboration with the firm’s International Trade and Export Controls practice group, we also counsel clients on regulations relating to defense procurement, including the International Trade in Arms (ITAR) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS).

Your legal matters receive the focus of a practice group that has repeatedly earned a place on India Business Law Journal’s list of “Top Foreign Law Firms,” and selected in both 2016 and 2013 as “International Law Firm of the Year” by India-based Legal Era magazine, recognizing the firm’s “legal finesse, innovation and achievements.”  Additionally, Kelley Drye has been honored in Chambers Asia as India Overseas Counsel for the Corporate & Finance: Mid-Market category for the last three consecutive years.  The ranking describes the firm as having a “long-standing India Practice” that “attracts big-name clients” and “contains a number of dual-qualified lawyers.”
